Comfort fit waistband...

It was a rather subdued holiday trip into Utah County. Christmas with the family was more like something to persevere rather than the usual bits of silliness. Could have been the economy. Could have been that huge nasty snowstorm. Could have been that everyone either had colds or felt up-chucky or down-trotty.

On the first day of the year it's been my habit to quote my friends and family members because the things that come out of their mouths seem noteworthy if not a little bit readable. With this combo going on there wasn't much to note. There was some talk about warm bums and which movies Tom Cruise didn't run or look like a girl in, but otherwise everyone sat in a glazed ham induced glaze.

Even playing my sister's Wii couldn't cure our mouthbreathing ways.

However, there is one quote, one noteworthy quote, that saves us from a blank New Years Day post. It's going down in Absent Minded family legend.

"But we don't have a Blue Ray player!"
- Unknowingly justified by my 14 year old son Kaelan, when he was teased about only being allowed to get himself BVDs when out shopping with his Grandma for his Christmas present.

Because when your Grandma buys you underwear and socks, it's out of love.

  1. Favourite family quote from Christmas has to be when my son, who was 7 at the time, ran into my in-laws house with his 4 year old brother close behind and told my brother-in-law, "we are here for a QUIET Christmas."

    Yeah right, when was the last time a 7 and 4 year old could be quiet for any length of time.
